Fun with Aiden...

A few days ago we headed down to Provo and hung out with Justina, Aiden, and Eva! The boys LOVE Aiden and it seems the older they get the more fun they have playing together. It's perfect because Justina's husband is in law school too so we're both pretty much single moms with two kids! Haha. Anyways, we went to Taco Bell and Hogi Yogi where the boys were...well, let me just say THEY had fun running wild driving us and everyone else in the restaurant crazy! Oh well, they had fun and at least Justina and I got to have a LITTLE adult talk!

They all thought it was so cool to lay in Aiden's little bed together...

The three cutest boys ever...Aiden beating up on Jack... =)

Photo Shoot in Underwears and T-shirts....

The boys were cute tonight playing so I got my camera out and got some pics...

Josh actually took this picture...

Jackson asked me to take a picture of the Thomas on his bum so he could see it...

They had a blast taking turns hiding in their bins...


Look at those manly men! No, Jack is not potty trained but he went poop in the potty today for the first time so I let him wear underwear for a while, he was SOOO excited to be "just like Joshy" but then he peed in them. I'm not going to worry about potty training him until after we move next month, it'll be hard to focus on taking him potty when I'm trying to get the house packed up. The good news, my mom is taking the boys up to Oregon for 5 days so we can move in peace! The boys are so excited to fly on an airplane! They'll be so cute! THANKS MOM AND DAD!!!

Drama at Wal-Mart...

You never know what'll happen when you go to Wal-Mart! Today I pulled in to the parking lot and saw an ambulance and a ton of police cars. I also noticed there was an EMT carrying a baby in a carrier to the ambulance! I walked in to the store and saw a lady filling out an incident report so me, being the nosy person I am, asked her what had happened. Apparently just a few minutes before, this guy was trying to steal a bunch of stuff from the store and an undercover cop caught him. He started chasing him and the guy TIPPED OVER HIS SHOPPING CART AND HIS 2 MONTH OLD BABY FELL OUT ONTO THE HARD FLOOR! He had hoped it would distract the cops and he could get away! You think, oh he was stealing food or something...no he was stealing electronic crap! He could've cared less about his poor little baby that he dumped out of the cart! Oh, and get this...where was the mom you ask? IN THE "GET AWAY CAR" IN THE FRONT! WATCHING ALL THIS! This world is truly disgusting and it breaks my heart that that poor baby has them for parents. Why do selfish idiots have children? Why can't we just sterilize them? AH!!! Anyways, that's my story for the day.

Valentine's Day...

As my dad would say, "Happy Forced Affection Day!" Hahaha. I'm not a huge fan of Valentine's Day because I feel it's just a day to make those that are lonely even more lonely and everyone else just goes out and spends a bunch of money because they have to. It forces men to be thoughtful and women to put out-both of which should be happening the other 364 days a year! Nevertheless, we had a fun day. The boys woke up to surprises from Grandma Morrill and they were SOOO excited! Here they are opening their presents...

They loved the spiderman candy and ate it all in one sitting! They also loved their spiderman shirts and of course had to wear them all day! Thanks for being so thoughtful mom! You made their day!

Later that day we dropped the boys off at Jackie's house and Parker and I went up to Ogden to go to Ruby River for dinner! We haven't been there since we moved down to Lehi and had the boys so it was fun to be up there together with no kids again! It brought back memories of the easy days before children, law school, and debt! We had a wonderful steak dinner and it was so relaxing without the boys! Thanks SOOOOO much Jackie for babysitting! The boys had a blast, they love her so much and were bawling on the way home begging to go back to Auntie Jackie's house! We took them to Coldstone on the way home to win them over again, which worked. Then we came home, put them down, and watched a movie. It was a fun day/night just because I got to spend so much time with my hubby, who I just love more and more every day and I feel so lucky that he's my Valentine! =)

Here we are on our way to dinner...(thanks for not getting my belly Jackie!)...

On a side note...last week I went to Boise to spend some time with my DEAR DEAR friend Tara and my wonderful mother in law watched the boys for me. Sounds like they had a lot of fun and she just blogged about it so if you want to see even MORE cute pics of my boys then check out her blog...http://michelleandbart.blogspot.com/

Cute Guys...

So I've realized that my last couple posts haven't had pictures of the boys! I know you all love me ever so much but, really, you just want to see my adorable boys! =) So here are two videos of them singing Popcorn Popping on the Apricot Tree and I Am a Child of God.

Also, Uncle Shane bought them these cute new shirts and the boys think they're just as handsome as can be! Ok, mommy thinks so too =)

Things around here are going well, we are now super stressing about finding a cheap place for the summer AND finding a place in DC! Needless to say, I'm on craigslist 24/7! Our worry is signing a contract somewhere and then things with our house sale falling through!

I am 16 weeks along now and am at that WONDERFUL fat stage, which is perfect for Valentine's Day! =( Sorry babe! Your Valentine is a fatty this year! =( I've decided the second pregnancy is way less exciting than the first. When I was pregnant with the boys I was SO excited to start showing. Now I am super bummed and hating my body. Oh well, I am still absolutely thrilled to meet my little bundle of joy in August! =)

Our House Sold!

We got some good news this week, our house sold after only being on the market for less than two weeks! We were really excited that it happened so fast! In this market you have to be grateful for being able to sell! We are supposed to close on April 1st so they could potentially back out between now and then but let's hope all goes well! While I am THRILLED about our house selling, it's now kinda hitting me that we have to LEAVE our home in less than two months! I am super sad now! I love our house and love so many things about it, I'm not looking forward to downsizing this summer and also when we move out to DC. =( I hope whoever moves in loves it as much as I have! So we're looking for a place to live from April-August anywhere from Lehi to Provo so if anyone has any ideas let me know!!!

Jenn's Thoughts...

So I'm kinda just in the mood to type so bear with me, this may be boring-haha.

First off, Josh is still doing great going potty. He's had no accidents and always tells me when he has to go potty. I am SO proud and am wondering if I'll be lucky enough to have Jackson be this easy to potty train!? Probably not.

Second, I had my doctors appt today and everything looks great! The little heartbeat brought tears to my eyes, I just love this baby so much already and can't wait to hold him/her in my arms! I get to find out the sex March 3rd, yay!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

On a more negative note I've been thinking lately about things that bother me and I just want to get them out...

1) Slow drivers in the fast lane, seriously people, if you aren't in a hurry why do you insist on holding up everyone who is?! Then there's the classy people who flip you off when you pass them, excuse me what did I do to you beside have to go around your SLOW RUDE LAZY butt!?

2) People smoking and driving. I love when people can't signal or yield or something because they're too busy lighting up-yet everyone is so concerned about teenagers and texting. Also, I love how smokers flick them out of the window when they're done, no regard for anyone else.

3) The fact that Obama likes to appoint people who either don't have any experience or who choose (or are too dumb to figure out how and when to pay) not to pay their taxes. No wonder Democrats want to raise taxes, they don't pay them!

4) The fact that if Bush had appointed these people he would've been hanged by now.

5) Why do people have to advertise on their big nasty trucks that they love to hunt?

6) I hate being at this stage in pregnancy, is she fat or is she pregnant?

7) I think it's hilarious how everyone is running out to get guns because they're worried about what Obama might do, they've gone this long without one but suddenly it's crucial they have one in their home.

8) I hate when people ask me, "is it 1 or 2 this time?" I tell them I'm having just one and they say, "oh good!" or "I'm so glad!" or "I bet you're relieved!" It kinda offends me, because why is twins seen as a bad thing? I love having twins and would've been fine having them again!!!

9) I'm sick of Parker being in school, I miss him...

10) I hope my baby is healthy, I feel so blessed with Jackson and Josh and I wonder how can I get this lucky again!?

Anyways, sorry to bore everyone I just had some thoughts on my mind, haha. I promise next post will have lots of pics of my cute boys. =)

Potty Training Update...

So for all those who are on the edge of your seats wanting to know how Joshy is doing with his potty training here goes! HE IS DOING SOOO WELL!!! I know I know, I'm his mom so I'm biased but I've just heard so many horror stories about potty training, especially boys, and I've had a great experience! We started last Tuesday and he has probably had a total of 4 accidents in that time frame-none of which were poo accidents-yay!!! He wakes up dry and tells us he has to go potty, I am just so proud of him! I'm taking him to the gym playplace today so we'll see how he does. Yesterday at church he told his nursery teacher he had to go potty then held it while they came to get us! I thought that was a big step!
The cutest thing ever has been Jackson, Josh's biggest fan at his side every single time he's gone to the bathroom. Whenever Joshy says he has to go potty Jack runs upstairs and sits by the potty ready to watch and help. When Josh is done Jack asks Josh if he can flush it, then he says "me so proud of you Josh!" or "You're such a big boy Josh!" Hahahahaha, it's so cute!

Good job Josh!!! Keep it up!!!
